Law license suspended for Mount Pleasant attorney accused of obstructing justice

The S.C. Supreme Court has suspended a Mount Pleasant attorney’s law license after she was arrested on suspicion of obstructing justice last month.

Melisa White Gay, 55, was arrested in February by the State Law Enforcement Division and charged with a single obstruction count, according to jail and court records.

The Supreme Court announced its decision to suspend Gay’s license Wednesday until further order of the court.

Her legal practice was placed under receivership and she was barred from making withdrawals from any of her bank accounts, according to the order. The court-appointed receiver was also given authority to receive Gay’s mail.

Gay’s alleged misconduct stemmed from her representation of Dwayne Walker, a 39-year-old North Charleston resident who was arrested in December by SLED on one count each of cocaine trafficking and possessing marijuana with intent to distribute, according to an affidavit.

The attorney called Walker’s girlfriend while she was meeting with her client and told the girlfriend to move cash and paperwork from Walker’s residence, the affidavit said. Gay also told the girlfriend to take the money to one of Walker’s associates, it said.

SLED agents who were with Walker’s girlfriend overheard the conversation, the affidavit said. Gay admitted to making the call and admitted to agents that she knew her instructions amounted to illegal activity.

Her obstruction case is pending in court.

It is common to question whether hiring an attorney is necessary before filing a trademark application. After all, anyone can file a trademark application with the US Patent and Trademark Office (the “USPTO”). You don’t need to be a licensed attorney or have any prior experience with trademarks to file an application. Is it worth investing in counsel on top of the costs to file an application?

While it may not seem important to work with an attorney at the outset, hiring an experienced trademark attorney can be crucial during the trademark application and registration process. A trademark attorney can advise you about many important legal issues and navigate you through what can be a very confusing process of getting your mark registered. Bad or uninformed decisions in the trademark application process can lead to the USPTO rejecting your application, delaying the process of you getting a registered trademark by months or years. Potential issues with which an attorney can assist you include:

While it may seem like an unnecessary added expense at the outset, having an experienced trademark attorney can ultimately save you time and money in the future.
